My Methods

My health and wellness methods have changed drastically over the years. From running multiple marathons, participating in college athletics, weight lifting, and attempting to diagnose difficult and painful health issues I’ve experienced, it feels like I’ve tried almost everything.

Eventually, I realized that perpetual trial and error will always be a part of a healthy lifestyle. Our bodies and minds are constantly changing, as is the environment around us. Change is the only constant over the long term.

But there are also successes along the way, and as I discover things that “work” for me, I need to adapt and develop my routines around these methods. In recent years, I’ve experienced a few major personal breakthroughs in overall health and fitness. Real results from things I once felt I would never be able to figure out.

Hopelessness has turned to excitement, and I want to share what has worked for me – hoping that a few of the ideas might work for someone else out there. There’s nothing better than waking up feeling healthier, stronger, more energetic, hopeful, and optimistic about the future.

Here’s what I’m focusing on today – I’m sure it will change over time, and my routine will look different in the future, but at least I know what direction I’m heading – for now.

You may have noticed there is no “Diet” section. I’m just not ready to tackle such a topic as of yet. I consider myself a clean and healthy eater, but I’m afraid my expertise is lacking in the diet department so I won’t even attempt to tackle the subject yet. But there are tons of great resources out there if you are looking for a starting point. I will post my favorites at some point in the near future.

There’s more to come! I will be adding additional information, along with new ideas, resources, and results from my latest personal experiments on all things health, wellness, fitness, and longevity. I hope you find some thought-provoking nuggets here, and please let me know if you have any thoughts, I’d love to hear them!
